Spread the word! Thank You! Alejandra M. Salaverria
Thanks for visiting my fundraising page for Team Robin Hood!
THANK YOU in advance for all of your support! For a second time, after skipping last year because of a torn ligament and fractured bone, I am running on Team Robin Hood for the 2015 NYC Marathon. Your support is greatly appreciated and going to a fantastic cause.
Since 1988, Robin Hood has funded poverty fighting programs by applying sound investment principles to philanthropy. It helps the best charitable programs save lives and change fates by focussing on poverty prevention through education assistance, skill training among others.
Please help make a difference in the lives of your neighbors - 100% of donations are directed to Robin Hood’s poverty-fighting efforts in NYC.
Additionally, I am Council Board Member of KIPP NY (a Robin Hood sponsored program). KIPP NYC is a network of 11 free, open-enrollment public charter schools preparing students for success in college and in life. Across 11 schools we serve 4,743 KIPPsters — 90% are from low-income families. I am passionate about this cause, and Robin Hood will grant the top 3 fundraisers the opportunity to designate fundraising to the organization of choice. Help me designate the funds to KIPP NY!!!
Just look at how far your donation can go:
- @RH $50 covers the daily wage for one formerly homeless man to participate on a work crew assignment that prepares him for full-time employment.
- @RH $75 provides a day of high quality preschool for one child.
- @KIPP $100 buys 15 books for one classroom/ @RH $100 connects one low-income family to public benefits, social services, and employment counseling.

- @KIPP $500 supports 1 month of music education for 5 students.
- $750 provides a year of basic literacy training and G.E.D. test preparation for one student.
- @KIPP $1,000 funds 1 month of Saturday instruction at a school/ @RH $1,000 pays for health care for one adolescent for one year.
- @KIPP $5,000 secures classroom supplies for 1 middle school class.

Lastly, on race day, November 1, we invite you to join Robin Hood staff, family and friends as we cheer at Mile 20 in the Bronx.
